I definitely recovered my strength, my confidence, and my decision making/problem solving abilities when I quit. I didn't have access to any of that when I was addicted, so the word "recovered" fits in the the sense that I found those abilities again.

As for lifetime, perpetual recovery from either addiction or some sort of spiritual sickness...that's a No for me.
